 What is IELTS Coaching?

My live IELTS coaching helps you get a 7+ band score in IELTS writing and speaking skills.

You will learn what your weaknesses are in these areas and learn how to build your IELTS vocabulary, structure your essays and speaking responses, improve your fluency and  improve your specific grammar structures that are keeping you from getting the band score that you want, need and deserve.

This will help you to move past the IELTS exam and achieve your dreams of immigrating to another country, validating your job in another country, studying abroad, or simply proving your level of English.

The classes are 55 minutes each.

What is the Problem Most Students Have?

" I don't know what to write."

"I don't know how to generate ideas."

"I don't know what vocabulary to use."

"I can't complete my tasks in the amount of time I have.

These are some of the most common struggles I hear from students before they start studying with me.  Students usually don't know how to build their vocabulary, structure their ideas, and use the kind of grammar that examiners are looking for.  The worst part of it, is that many students have no idea what they are doing wrong or why.

The cost of not improving these weaknesses, means that you are unlikely going to be able to achieve your bigger dreams.  The IELTS exam is what is standing in your way and you need to know what to do to get the 7+ band score that you what, need and deserve.

After IELTS coaching with me, students are usually able to improve by one full band score or even a band score in a half just a matter of weeks. 

Students learn how to easily structure their essays, uses complex grammar structures as well as academic and topical vocabulary in their tasks.

Do I need to do anything before the first class?

Yes!  It's ideal to reserve the class package about 5-7 days before you start your course.  You will need to complete a level test, do a quick technology test, and review the student handbook policies.  

Do I need to buy anything else for the course?

The only thing you need is your computer (it's an online class) a quiet place, and a set of earphones with a microphone.  Using earphones with a microphone is required since I will need to assess your speaking and pronunciation skills and I need to be able to hear you at an optimal level.
